Hi there! I wanted to make sure to share about this lovely bride that I had the chance to provide makeup services for this month. I really enjoyed providing makeup services for her special day.
She was so very sweet! For her big day, she wanted a bit of drama with her eyes and just for the rest of the look to be complimentary to her skin tone. I made sure to pick the type of colors that would look well on a variety of people, because when she completed her bridal preview, she was a blonde and untanned. But she kindly let me know that she was planning on becoming a brunette and tanning her skin several shades darker. So I did plan a wedding makeup look for her that looked great whether she was the lighter version of herself, or her sun-kissed tan version.
I made sure to use one of my favorite high-end foundations that is great at blurring the surface texture of the skin and making it very porcelain like. I loved the velvety smooth and soft look that this gave to her facial skin! I also used a soft silver shimmer color on her eyelid, with a soft brown shimmer on her brow bone. Once again, this gave a nice soft, dreamy look to her eyes.
I lined her eyes with black eyeliner and softly smoked them out to add a bit of drama there. I also luminized the spine of her nose with a bit of shimmer pigment to add to her face glow.
For her cheeks, I used one of my all time favorite blushes, NARS Orgasm! I know the name may be a bit of a shocker, but it is a blush with a cult following because it gives a nice glow to the cheeks. It looks great on a wide variety of skin tones and I love how it just wakes the cheeks up.
For her lips, I couldn't resist using what I like to consider a classic bridal pink lipstick shade on her lips. I love that the color helped to liven up her face but it was not overpowering.
The verdict? She loved it! She sent me pics afterwards and she did indeed look like a princess. Such gorgeous cheekbones and beautiful blue eyes. I'm sure she made her groom very happy that day!
